Shura means consultation. Majlis-e-Shura is a consultative body of MKA that makes recommendations in regards to the Majlis to Khalifat-ul-Masih. It is a platform for Ahmadi youth to present their ideas and suggestions to Khalifat-ul-Masih by deliberating on those ideas and making recommendations for implementing them. Each local chapter submits proposals and elects a delegation based on its size to represent them at Majlis-e-Shura. The merits of proposals sent by local chapters are discussed by the National Amila, and then presented to Khalifat-ul-Masih for approval for deliberation at Majlis-e-Shura. After deliberation at the Shura, recommendations are submitted to Khalifat-ul-Masih for approval.
